Bottled tropical sunshine with misty Scottish undertone.

The tiny town of Rothes by the River Spey is home to four distilleries and has Scotch embedded in its DNA. One of those Whisky-making establishments is the Glenrothes Distillery (its name is literally "the valley of Rothes"), with history dating back to 1879. With ancient recipes and tradition by their side, they have been making award-winning Whiskies for decades.

The Glenrothes 18-year-old is a lush expression that has summer written all over it. It's part of The Soleo Collection, a range of five Glenrothes Whiskies that pay homage to the grapes from which certain Sherries are made (PX, for instance). Why? Because this sweet/spicy potion was matured in ex-Sherry casks and it oozes with refreshing aromas and rich flavors. It's a perfect choice for after-dinner lounging and it plays well with fine chocolate or cheese. It's sophisticated and it took the distillery a long time to create this luxury.

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
